Heidi Klum

Shopped Around L.A. ...

For Divorce Lawyers

1/24/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum did not make a snap decision to divorce Seal. She's interviewed a number of the best divorce lawyers in L.A. over the last 2 weeks ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Heidi has already selected one of the lawyers based on her interviews, and as we first reported, she has already decided she will file for divorce

We're told the interviews with the lawyers were conducted at a secret location because Heidi was concerned about a leak.

We're told all of the lawyers she met with have repped a number of celebrity clients -- the attorneys  are among the most prominent in town.

And there's a twist. Seal can't hire any of the lawyers Heidi rejected because she shared confidential information with them, so representing Seal would create a conflict of interest. The good news for Seal -- there are still other good divorce lawyers to be had.

As we reported, when Heidi files, she will cite "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce. Seal's temper, we're told, was a significant factor in her decision.

Never could figure that romance out. nice looking and married to someone that looks like he went through a windshield. I guess like they say, love is blind and in this case it was also color blind.

Heidi must have watched that episode of the Sopranos where Tony was advised to meet with all the top divorce lawyers so that Carmella wouldn't be able to be represented due to conflict of interest. Kind of mean.

Beautiful couple. My thoughts are they both have fame & fortune. If the need for more money & power is the drive behind either of them, I think it's time to re-evaluate what a family is. I say finish with your current commitments and focus on family life for a while. They've both seen a lot done a lot and made a lot of money. Take a pause and think what's really important. After the money, power and fame is gone what will they have,friends? I think not. All there will be is family and the sacrifices made to make that most important job in the world work. That's the number one commitment that needs to be meet in this case. I do believe this couple truly love each other and can make it work. This is the one couple in the celeb eye I really adore for some odd reason.

No, neither of these people are known to be cheaters - I think with the anger issue there may have been some physical abuse problems - very sad, as I think they both love each other and their family. But, physical abuse is a real deal breaker! I wish he would get some professional help with his anger issues.

LOL, and this from someone who's always trying to convince everyone how great their bedroom escapades are. Heidi's a nasty girl, she deserves everything she gets.
